CLEMATIS CIRRHOSA 'FRECKLES'
No garden should be without some winter flowering climbers and this is one of the best. An evergreen climber, it flowers almost continually (in a good year) from the autumn right through the winter. It even has bursts of seasonal amnesia during the summer. The flowers are cream coloured, the size of an apricot and so heavily blotched with maroon spots inside that it appears deep pink. They can be damaged in very severe weather – but quickly reappear during the next mild spell.
A vigorous grower it accepts harsh pruning when it gets out of control without a murmur.
